I broke down…

and I am glad I did. I learned awhile back about Start Write and I wanted to order it right away. I didn’t though, thinking I could live without a $40 program. Well, as P’s handwriting continued to NOT improve much and I really wanted an easy way to do copy work that I create myself, I broke down and clicked “order.” I am SOOO glad I did! I honestly thought P would hate me, he does not like handwriting, but I was quite wrong! He was so excited that the sheets were custom made for him (some with his full name, our address, Bible verses he likes, color words, etc.). He asked me to do more than 1 in a day!
He doesn’t LOVE them as much now that the newness has worn off, but he does it without complaining and doesn’t mind them at all. He even enjoys some of them! I am excited to have this as I prepare for K’s more formal schooling too, it was a $40 well spent, I highly recommend it!

    Carisa, thanks for your insight on Start Write as my son says that he hates handwriting. I’ve been reluctant to spend money on any program until now. Thanks, I will have to give this a try. ~Sako

    That’s really neat. I purchased a CD from Educational Fontware with lots of different fonts. I’m guessing it’s the same kind of concept (I can custom make things for Elijah). I love it because it has the Handwriting Without Tears font; Elijah has really liked the HWOT program, so it’s been a big bonus at our house!

    Isn’t it great to buy something and feel like your money has been well spent instead of wasted! Sometimes it’s so hard to know until you actually try it.

    I love Start Write, too. It has the Italic font that we use, and it has made copywork much easier.
